Heldrungen Military Prison
|Heldrungen Military Prison|
|Wildenstein class Station|
Heydekrug is a high-security prison within a desolate area of Thuringia constructed in the year 822 A.S. as a joint project of the Marinenachrichtendienst and Rheinland Military, originally foreseen as an experimental facility to improve the resocialization of convicts in existing prisons through humane or inhumane conditions. Rheinland's secret service deemed it necessary to operate a cage for special, or rather, hopeless cases - people who either know too much or are a threat to national security. War criminals, warlords, terrorists and spies, but especially traitors - individuals deemed unworthy of a second chance, are all locked away here from the rest of civilization. Those interned within simply disappear from existence without leaving a trace, as though they never existed. The prisoners do not even know where they are detained. The MND does not intend to release any inmates from Heydekrug.
Heydekrug's personnel is said to be brutal towards its inmates, often interrogating them for hours to squeeze out every last bit of information through the use of drugs and thorough "enhanced interrogation methods." Officers of the Rheinland Military who are aware of the facility's existence believe that Heydekrug's prisoners serve as experimental subjects for genetic tests, viruses, Nomad infestation and other unethical experiments. Hence it is a dreaded prison earning the nickname "Das Eiserne Tribunal" ("The Iron Tribunal") among the military.
